JETBLUE PLANS NEW FOCUS CITY AT BOSTON'S LOGAN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

Low-fare Carrier Reaches Long-Term Agreement with Massport to Occupy 11-Gate Terminal C Facility

 

JetBlue Airways today announced it has reached an agreement to lease the long-term use of the 11-gate Terminal C, Pier C facility at Boston's Logan International Airport subject to Massport Board approval and execution of definitive documentation.

 

Beginning this May, the carrier expects to occupy five gates in Terminal C as well as 14 ticket counter positions. Starting in 2006, JetBlue will continue its growth in Terminal C by adding one gate every six months over the next three years. The carrier currently occupies two gates at Logan's Terminal E.

 

Similar to the carrier's successful Terminal 6 project at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, JetBlue will invest over $9 million improving its new Terminal C location in Boston with facilities and concessions its customers have come to expect.

 

"For Logan Airport and JetBlue, it's wheels up," said Governor Mitt Romney. "Business has taken off, and with today's announcement we're looking at clear skies and smooth flying. Logan's partnership with JetBlue will reap economic benefits and rewards for local travelers for years to come."

 

"I'm tremendously proud of the great work our Boston crewmembers do each day to look after our customers," said David Neeleman, JetBlue's CEO. "We're looking forward to growing JetBlue's Boston service over the next few years as we settle into our new home in Terminal C."

 

"There is no question that JetBlue's arrival has had a very positive impact on Logan," said Craig Coy, Chief Executive Officer, Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport). "A lot of great things are happening here in Boston as we continue to build a New Logan for all of New England. And, as we move forward we're lucky to have great people like David Neeleman -- and the men and women of JetBlue -- as outstanding partners in this effort."

 

With JetBlue's current schedule, plus a recently announced west coast expansion, the carrier offers 19 daily flights from Boston with nonstop service to Oakland, Long Beach, CA; Denver, CO; Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, Fort Myers and Orlando, FL. The carrier recently announced plans to add new daily nonstop service from Boston to Las Vegas, NV and San Jose, CA effective May 3.

 

JetBlue is a low-fare, low-cost passenger airline, which provides high-quality customer service. JetBlue operates a fleet of 70 new Airbus A320 aircraft and plans to add 14 additional A320s and 7 Embraer E190s to its fleet in 2005. Based at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport, JetBlue currently operates 276 flights a day and serves 30 destinations in 12 states, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and The Bahamas.

 

All JetBlue aircraft feature roomy leather seats; all equipped with an in-seat digital entertainment system offering up to 36 channels of free DIRECTV® programming. On many flights, a selection of first-run movies and bonus features from FOX InFlight Premium Entertainment may be available. *
